Man arrested on meth charges after search of motel room

A Carson City man was arrested early Tuesday by the Sheriff's Department's Special Enforcement Team after an informant told police the man was selling methamphetamine.

Milo Cook, 27, was booked into the Carson City Jail on suspicion of felony sale of a controlled substance, misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

According to the arrest report, an informant allegedly bought methamphetamine from Cook at 10 p.m. on Monday night with money supplied by SET.

Based on the informant's statements and surveillance conducted two days earlier by SET members, a judge signed a search warrant about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday allowing police to enter Cook's Stewart Street motel room.

About 4:25 a.m., after further surveillance on the motel room, officers entered and allegedly found a half-gram of methamphetamine and 28 grams of marijuana. A Bible with a hole cut out of the center was also allegedly found, along with a meth pipe and directions on how to manufacture methamphetamine.

Cook denied selling methamphetamine to the informant, according to the report.

His bail was set at $21,864.
